Improving Health Through Stable Housing: The Oregon Health and Housing Learning Collaborative, Housing with Services, LLC
A growing body of research has shown that quality, affordable housing has significant health benefits for vulnerable populations, and that providing coordinated health services in an affordable housing setting can both reduce costs and improve health outcomes for the most at-risk and hard to reach individuals.
Enterprise Community Partners is addressing this gap by supporting innovative housing and healthcare partnerships through its national Health and Housing Initiative. Under this initiative, Enterprise has established The Oregon Health and Housing Learning Collaborative (OHHLC). This brief highlights OHHLC member Housing with Services, LLC, who brings together housing providers, health insurers and service providers to create affordable housing with integrated health services.
